My name is Chieh. I am a trainee counselling psychologist (MBPsS) as well as a registered counsellor (MBACP). I adhere to British Psychological Society (BPS) and British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)’s ethical codes that include respecting confidentiality and having regular clinical supervision. I practice integratively drawing on a range of approaches (cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic, and systemic) to meet each person’s needs and best interests.
Integrative therapy with Yung-Chieh
Sometimes we may feel trapped by situations, people, or ourselves; we may also cling to beliefs and behaviours that we simply cannot let go. By working collaboratively in counselling, we may enable a shift in our mind-set and make change happen.
My counselling approaches are complemented by Eastern philosophies. As a counsellor, I value trusting and honest therapeutic alliance and aim to provide a safe, containing, empathetic and non-judgmental space, where you can be yourself, be heard and understood, and explore any present issues and/or something from the past. I respect the uniqueness of each person, so I practice integratively drawing on a range of modalities to suit each person’s needs and goals.
I have worked with staff members at an NHS Trust hospital, patients registered at a GP surgery, drug and alcohol recovery service users, survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse, and people with suicidal ideations and attempts. My experiences of working with different, complex cases and strong emotions have strengthened my empathic understanding of the complexity of mental health, challenging life events, and humanity. Moreover, my international exposure has enhanced my understanding of cultural dissimilarities, respect of diversities, and tolerance towards differences. Furthermore, my past work experience in the finance sector is invaluable to my counselling practice, as I truly understand work-related anxiety and depression, how everyone perceives and responds to stress differently, and how workplace pressure can impact different areas in life.
